As some of you know, I recently moved from Northern Indiana to Southern California. It’s quite humbling to find out that I was able to pack my whole life into the trunk of my car. Why did I make the move? I just graduated college, I’m single, I wanted a new adventure with new scenery, and my aunt had an open room in her home calling my name. A golden opportunity.
But let me tell you, living in a new place is much more difficult than I had imagined. I had such sweet fellowship and love in Indiana. Here in CA, I only have some family and a few friends (I must mention though, the friends I have met are great).
So where do I fit? Well, that’s what I’m trying to figure out. I know that God desires that I would be surrounded by believers like me who are in passionate pursuit of him. However, the search for that has been rougher than expected.
In the midst of this struggle, one of my California friends (Shelby) texted me a verse reference that blew my socks off. I’m thankful that God placed it on her heart, and then to share it with me.
Your way was through the sea, your path through the great waters; yet your footprints were unseen.
I guess that’s God’s way of telling me he’d like for me to let go and let him take the reigns on this one. I know he will provide the community that I need in his perfect timing. Until then, I conclude that it’s in my best interest to just trust him. Plus, I’ve only been here for about a month and a half! So I guess a dose of patience would also help!
Side note: If you’re like me and need context, read the rest of Psalm 77. It’s incredible.
